Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
Coonawarra's 2015 vintage was amongst the earliest on record. An ideal growing season of slightly above average temperatures and dry conditions produced outstanding red wines.
Production Notes
The wine was matured for approximately 16 months in 225 litre oak barrels. 50% were new French oak barriques, with the balance in older French oak.
Winemaker Notes
Nose: Vibrant dark berry fruits, dark cherry with hints of chocolaty oak notes. Palate: Richly layered dark berry fruit and hints of mulberry. Subtle vanillin oak and lingering, fine grained tannins.
Food Pairing Notes
Roast duck with braised red cabbage, slow cooked beef cheek or crumbly cheddar.

When I poured this wine it immediately invaded my personal space but rather than back away, I grabbed it and allowed it to stay close. It smelt clean and fresh while black fruits bombed the senses.

Even on the palate that clean-ness is apparent but again the lush black fruits are obvious and oh so pleasantly so! These flavours are calmed by a creaminess that spreads it all out and helps it hang there...and hang there.......and hang there.................and hang there!
